Hensarling Elected to Third Term as Financial Services Committee Chairman


Washington, December 2, 2016 -

WASHINGTON ā€“ Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) issued the following statement today after he was elected to a third term as chairman of the committee for the upcoming 115th Congress:

ā€œI am humbled by the support and trust of my colleagues to continue my service as chairman of the Financial Services Committee. In the coming Congress, we will continue our important work of helping to grow the economy for all Americans, not just those at the top. We will focus on ending taxpayer-funded bailouts and too big to fail. We will work to hold both Wall Street and Washington accountable, because consumers must be vigorously protected from fraud as well as the loss of their economic liberty. As chairman, I look forward to working with the incoming Trump Administration to advance bold and ambitious solutions that will help make America better, stronger and more prosperous.ā€
